Art licensing Assignment WIP
@kevin-longueil Thanks Kevin. I decided that one was still garbage...lol..so I probably won't be doing much to it. I'll probably use that owl for something since now I have an 8x11 of him at high resolution
And I came up with this for the owl. Going to do use all the birds from my kidlit 411 banner to make several different ones.
@evilrobot Ooooh, I love this one!
@evilrobot I went to the website for the mock ups but you had to be a member. Yours look very polished. Did you get them from this site:
Did you become a member to get them? Was there a different site?
@hopper12 You can find the garden flag template here You have to sign up for her news letter and she'll email you a link. Everything else is just images I found on the internet and used Photoshop to mock up.
Here's my next bird.
Work in progress on my third bird. Still a ways to go but I like how it's turning out so far.
There is quite a bit of potential in those! They look great. I would take the birds and think of a set of notecards. They would work really well because you have a collection of them.
I could be wrong, but i thought there was some sort of update with photoshop that supplied you with items to mockup. I will have to look around and see. Anyway, this stuff looks fantastic. I have yet to watch that course, but I might have to do that today.

@evilrobot I'm not sure about using the branches for words. I'm making this point because I think you need to know what product the image would be on or keep the art more general to fit multiple products. At poster size the branches would work but at coffee cup size they probable would not. I do a lot of shirt design work and run in to this issue when I try to use the same art for tiny stickers and such. All the value lessons in the videos apply very strongly to this kind of work.
Thank you @evilrobot
@chip-valecek That would be awesome if they had something like that. And the class is awesome! (they just need to get all the supporting templates and PDF's in there so we can complete the assignments)
@rcartwright Thanks;) I'm horrible with lettering so I figure the way I can maybe get by is doing some kind of illustrated lettering for now anyway until my skill with hand lettering gets better. Anyway these are mock ups for garden flags the small ones are around 12.5 x 18 and the large ones are up in the 20" range so I think for those it's OK. If I try to sell them for other things I'll eliminate the lettering all together. Thank you very much for your input.

And finished the last one. So here are all three for the fall collection. Going to do three birds for each season then have enough to try to license for a calendar as well.
